Know anything about obama receiving funding for college and claiming he was foreign born..ie., kenya?
No Columbia University won't give me his records! But they won't give me yours either, so I'm thinking maybe you got in by claiming to be Cherokee like Liz. But I got funding by claiming that I was a poor white boy, so that's kinda shady too.

Well, I am from a real minority group...those who did not get any funding but paid their way as they went

Well good for you and Romney; I wish my parents had had the pocket change to send me to Harvard full ride so I didn't have to pay off all those student loans. But thank you Presidents Reagan and Bush for making sure I had those loans available to me.

Well, I couldn't afford Harvard...but I worked two jobs (and didn't get drunk or strung out on the weekends, not saying you did however)and yes I did receive assistance from my parents, but they were far from being "Trumps" just a small town farmer and his housewife who maintained a level of pride that they didn't expect someone else to put their kid through college....Oh I know what you "the point" will say, you'll go on about farm subsidies or other government programs that assist agricuture and attempt to make "the point" that I did get funding for college or others like me who attempt to work hard, and to do the right thing... no I not as successful as Romney, but I respect him...not just for his wealth, but for his core values and his clear belief in the free enterprise system...no apologies from Romney and no apologies from me for that

So what, exactly, are Mitt Romney's core values? If we were talking George Romney, who did work his way up like you and me and respected people like us, then, yes, I'm with you. But we're talking about his trust fund son who not only doesn't seem to share his father's values, but doesn't seem to have ANY values that he doesn't change from election to election (or during a live debate apparently). Saying Romney respects free enterprise is like saying the pimp must respect women because you always see him with them. Listen, if you think Romney will make a better president, then vote for him. He is a smart guy, but please don't let this snake oil salesman convince you that he's anything like us or even begins to understand our values.
